***** THIS PROGRAM NEED ANSI.SYS IN ORDER TO WORK PROPERLY *****
MAKE SURE YOU HAVE THE LINE 'DEVICE=ANSI.SYS' IN YOUR CONFIG.SYS .

THIS KEY PROGRAM MIGHT BE USEFUL WHEN YOU ARE DOING A LOT OF
WORK FROM THE DOS COMMAND LINE. IT WILL SAVE TYPING TIME FOR YOU.
ANOTHER WAY YOU CAN USE IS BUILD THE MAIN MENU FOR THE YOUR WORK
STATION AND INVOKE APLICATIONS IN ONE KEY STROKE.

YOU CAN INVOKE KEY AND USE THE MAIN MENU TO SET UP YOUR KEYS OR
INVOKE IT FROM THE COMMAND LINE USING THE APPRORIATE PARAMETER.

THERE ARE COUPLE THINGS THAT YOU MIGHT WANT TO KEEP IN MIND:

- KEY WILL READ THE DATA FILE IN THE CURRENT DIRECTORY YOU ARE IN
IF IT CAN NOT FIND ONE, IT WILL CREATE A DEFAULT ONE. YOU CAN
TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THIS FEATURE AND CREATE DIFFERENT SETUPS FOR THE
THE APPLICATION IN THE DIRECTORY.

- I SUGGEST THAT YOU INVOKE KEY USING THE 'F' OPTION BEFORE
REUPDATING THE KEYS. BY DOING SO, YOU CAN ELEMINATE SOME
OF THE PROBLEMS YOU MIGHT HAVE WITH ANSI.SYS .


BELOW ARE THE PARAMETERS THAT YOU CAN USE WHEN INVOKING KEY
FROM THE COMMAND LINE (E.G. ENTER ' KEY V '):

PARAMETERS: FUNCTION:

V : WILL SKIP THE MAIN MENU AND TAKE YOU TO THE VIEW MENU.

E : WILL SKIP THE MAIN MENU AND TAKE YOU TO THE EDIT MENU.

U : WILL UPDATE THE KEYS USING THE CURRENT VALUE IN 'KEY.DAT'.

F : WILL CLEAR ALL THE SETTING OF THE KEYS AND LEAVE THE
DATA FILE INTACT.

B : SHOULD BE USE IN BATCH FILE SO KEY.EXE WON'T STOP THE
BATCH PROCESS. OPTION B WORKS LIKE OPTIONS U; IT ONLY
DO THE UPDATE TO THE FUNCTION KEYS.

GOOD LUCK AND I HOPE THE PROGRAM CAN BE USEFUL TO YOU.
